[texts]Deriving Einstein's Mass - Energy Equation E = mc2 - Patrick Bruskiewich
In a brilliant paper titled "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend upon its Energy-Content?" published in September 1905 in the German physics journal Annalen der Physik, 17, 1905 ("Ist die Tragheit eines Korpers von seinem Energiegehalt abha¤ngig?") Einstein was able to show that the mass of an object is a measure of its energy content. In this Ï - Physics Initiative in Education module Einstein's Mass-Energy Equation E = mc2 is derived and some of its implications are described...

[texts]Really ... Does Malala Deserve a Nobel Prize? - Patrick Bruskiewich
On the eve of the announcement of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, like an old, tarnished and somewhat scratched penny, Malala Yousafzai's name once again is mentioned. I am rather surprised that this young and unworthy candidate was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, even as a symbol, for there are other better choices regarding better education in the Third World, several of which I mention below. And I think, like most of the world, should the Oslo Committee decide to grant this young and undese...

[texts]Time Optimization, Fermat's Principle and Mathematics-Based Technology Enhanced Learning using Excel - Patrick Bruskiewich
We can view reflection of light off a mirror, and refraction of light leading to Snell's Law as a Time Optimization Problem (TOP). Fermat's Principle is that the path traveled by light is the path of least travel time, an explicit description of time optimization. A third TOP problem, flight time between two points, with auxiliary travel constraints, will also be considered in this paper. Solving Time Optimization Problem using a spreadsheet program like EXCEL is a good example of Mathematics-ba...

[texts]Lense-Thirring Frame Dragging and its Effect on Galactic Structure - No Need for Dark Matter Hypothesis - Patrick Bruskiewich
While we normally consider Lense-Thirring Frame Dragging when studying compact sources with high rotational rates, we should not overlook frame dragging in large structures such as galaxies which have small rotational rates. Although Lense-Thirring frame dragging is a minute effect, due to a galaxy's size and angular momentum this minute effect will be observable at a galactic scale. The frame dragging will modify the normal Keplerian orbital dynamics...

[texts]The Bruskiewich - Volkoff - Von Neumann Algorithm: A Simulation of a Random Two or Three State System - Patrick Bruskiewich
This manuscript was co-written in 1982 with Dr. George Volkoff but remained lost in the primary author's papers, until recently rediscovered with other manuscripts. The crux of this paper stems from discussions that the primary author had with Dr. Volkoff, and prior discussions George had with his colleagues Stanislaw Ulam and the late John von Neumann. Using the Ulam Mapping Function an algorithm is developed to produce pseudo-random two and three state selection, such as coin tosses and random...

[texts]George Volkoff and reactor physics in Canada - Patrick Bruskiewich
George Volkoff, along with Fermi and Weinberg, is one of the three fathers of nuclear reactor theory. During the second world war Volkoff worked with the Montreal Theory Group developing heavy water reactor theory. The first attempt to build a function reactor was made in Canada nearly a year before Fermi undertook his Chicago experiments. The Ottawa failed due to a lack of sufficient material of adequate purity...

Prodigiousness is shared between boys and girls, but genius is predominately a male attribute. The four case studies look at Albert Einstein, Kurt Godel, Paul Erdos and Srinivasa Ramanujan. Gifted Children have special needs. While gifted children inspire admiration, left to their own devices in a normal classroom, they suffer neglect, ridicule and misunderstanding.
